Summary

For the children who live in the remote villages of Malawi prompt access to essential medicines is often the difference between life and death. Our mobile health clinic takes medical care to where it is most needed: to the children in the hard to reach areas. We also deliver public health education to the communities served by the mobile clinic as we believe prevention is better than cure. Our appeal to you is to help us raise $33,500 to treat 10,000 cases of malaria.

Challenge

Malawi is one of the world's poorest country and Nkhotakota district is one of the least developed district of Malawi. 90% of the population are subsistence farmers or fishermen. Without the mobile clinic, children in the remote villages of Nkhotakota would have no access to medical care; they would suffer and die from ailments such as malaria that are easily and cheaply treatable if only the diagnostic skills and medicines are available.

Solution

Every month our mobile health clinic travels to 16 remote villages and provide essential medicines to sick children. In 2013 we treated just over 25,000 sick children and one third of the children were treated for malaria. We also provide education on nutrition, HIV/AIDS and hygiene to the parents/guardians of the children.

Long-Term Impact

Malaria is endemic in Malawi and if left untreated can be fatal or bring long term disability. In 2014 we aim to provide free medical care to 30,000 children and a third of those children will be treated for malaria. Each day our mobile clinic goes out we save lives.
